Archibald Macleish Earth Poems

    mon semblable, mon frère
    Our epoch takes a voluptuous satisfaction
    In that perspective of the action

    The roll of earth, the pitch and fall
    That swings across these trees those stars:
    That swings the sunlight up the wall.

Ernest Dowson Poem
Vain Hope
 by Ernest Dowson

Sometimes, to solace my sad heart, I say,
Though late it be, though lily-time be past,
Though all the summer skies be overcast,

And cast my rests of life before her feet,
That she may have her will of me, being so sweet
